Thoughts on Today's Verse...

God abhors those who take advantage of powerless people, who are going through a series of difficulties, or who are in compromising situations. Those who exploit the needy, weak, poor, or disadvantaged must know that God sees their actions and will hold them accountable. Those in distress need to keep their faith in God, trusting that he sees, cares, and will send help at his right time. Those of us who fit neither category need to work for the deliverance and blessing of those facing difficulties and hardships. That's the heart of God (Psalm 68:5; Isaiah 10:1-3).

My Prayer...

Gracious God, please bless several people I know who are in times of real distress and heartbreak. Please use me to minister to them. But please, dear Father, fill them with your Spirit so they will have the strength and courage necessary to endure with faith. Bless them with deliverance that is clearly from you so that all will know your grace and give glory to you. I ask this in Jesus' name, I pray. Amen.
